Kayaking or canoeing, what's the difference?
The terms kayaking and canoeing are often misused or confused, particularly by novices, so what are the differences? In very general terms they are mainly to do with the way the boats are paddled – a kayak is paddled from a seated position with twin bladed paddles, while a canoe is (properly) paddled from a kneeling position using a single bladed paddle. Both kayaks and canoes can be either open or closed cockpit, although there is a tendency for kayaks to most often be closed and for canoes to be open. Some beginners kayaks are sit-on-top and have no cockpit, thus avoiding any problems with paddlers unused to spray decks (skirts) or rolling.
